- According to a report from the Times Tribune, a Pennsylvania man has been charged with making threats to kill Barack Obama just before the President’s scheduled visit to the city of Scranton.
In a none-too-flattering indication of the man’s intelligence, police were tipped off when 42 year-old Nicholas Savino sent an email to the White House on August 16, detailing his threat, all justified by his apparent view that Obama is the “anti-Christ.”
Also tipping off police was a phone call from the Federal Aviation Administration regarding Savino, who had been denied a pilot’s license and had made threats in Oklahoma, his previous place of residence. He had been living in the Pennsylvania area for a year and worked as an engineer — which is bizarre because engineering requires a sufficient amount of logical thought.
A sample of Savino’s musings in the email are as follows:
President Obama the Anti-Christ. As a result of breaking the constitution you will stand down or be shot dead.
Yes, “breaking the constitution” is a no-no when conducting anti-Christ business.
As Obama touched down in Northeast Pennsylvania, Clarks Summit Police and the Lackawanna County SWAT team paid Savino a little visit and seized a cache of weapons from his house. He’s now being investigated by the Secret Service.
If he’s convicted, Savino faces a maximum five years in prison — which begs the question; who’ll protect us from the anti-Christ if he’s put away?
